Department of Agricultural Engineering

Agricultural Engineering

Agricultural Engineering is the area of engineering concerned with the design, construction and improvement of farming equipment and machinery. Agricultural engineers integrate technology with farming. For example, they design new and improved farming equipment that may work more efficiently, or perform new tasks.

Agricultural engineers typically work in offices, but may spend time at a variety of worksites, both indoors and outdoors. They may travel to agricultural settings to see that equipment and machinery are functioning according to both the manufacturers' specifications and federal and state regulations. Some agricultural engineers occasionally work in laboratories to test the quality of processing equipment. They may work onsite when they supervise livestock facility upgrades or water resource management projects.

Agricultural engineers work with others in designing solutions to problems or applying technological advances. They work with people from a variety of backgrounds, such as business, agronomy, animal sciences, and public policy.

The vision of the department is to establish itself as a Centre of Excellence in terms of research and teaching in its chosen Areas. Our undergraduate program is based on the pedagogy of learning by doing. The Aim is to invoke in our students a sense of inquisitiveness to question and to motivate them to think about the theoretical and applied problems in technology for the benefit of society. Each faculty is given adequate time to the students and are encouraged to take up project work in the area of Post Harvest, Irrigation, and Soil water Conservation & Farm Machinery.

The Department has Qualified and Experienced Faculty Members, all holding degrees from Renowned Institutes. Over the years the Department has developed excellent facilities to impart training in the areas of Farm Machinery & Tractors, Irrigation & Drainage Engg., Soil & Water conservation and Agro processing and also the department has organised many faculty development programmes to enhance the knowledge of faculties. We also Undertake research projects sponsored by the industry.

OPPORTUNITIES FOR AGRICULTURAL ENGINEERS

Agricultural engineers work in farming, including aquaculture (farming of seafood), forestry, and food processing. They work on a wide variety of projects. For example, some agricultural engineers work to develop climate control systems that increase the comfort and productivity of livestock whereas others work to increase the storage capacity and efficiency of refrigeration. Many agricultural engineers attempt to develop better solutions for animal waste disposal. Those with computer programming skills work to integrate artificial intelligence and geospatial systems into agriculture. For example, they work to improve efficiency in fertilizer application or to automate harvesting systems.

Agricultural engineers typically do the following

  • Use computer software to design equipment, systems, or structures
  • Modify environmental factors that affect animal or crop production, such as airflow in a barn or runoff patterns on a field
  • Test equipment to ensure its safety and reliability
  • Oversee construction and production operations
  • Plan and work together with clients, contractors, consultants, and other engineers to ensure effective and desirable outcomes
